judiciary led the way to social equality, racial equality in the united states. and it was not just the appointments of earl warren and oral brennan to the supreme court, but the host of liberal republicans such as the president appointed himself like albert title of georgia and john of louisiana. these were the judges that were in the vanguard of the civil rights struggle. but the most significant judicial appointment i think that eisenhower made at that time is that of john marshall hall of the great conservative justice and just after the landmark decision in brown v board of education. shortly after that decision came down, justice robert jackson died leaving the vacancy on the court, and at that point roosevelt turned to the grandson of the great marshall harlem who would be the only dissenter in percy versus ferguson and 1896, the case legalized segregation by appointing the great dissenter eisenhower was making a statement he could not have adored. he said eisenhower was going to enforce it. when the segregation attempted to swap the integration in little rock eisenhower sent

. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. those are green plants are visible. they are still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce a record detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe under a year. maybe only a few months. the detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of the classroom. it might be difficult to find and target that workshop

is a big thing that iran knows and israel knows and the rest of the world knows that the united states is not going to let iran get a weapon or capability of getting a weapon. >> first of all, i think there's a balance. you need to strike a balance. what many including governor romney and congressman ryan and others around the world have said you have to be specific about this capability point. that you have to be able to signal to the iranians and the world that just building the weapon or getting close to building the weapon, is not the red line. having the tools at their disposal, that they would be easily assembled is a big problem and must be stopped because if they have the tools to assemble a weapon, easily assemble a weapon, it will have the impact that the iranian leadership wants. it will enable them to establish some set of region in the back their terror proxy operations through hezbollah and hamasimpum to just put pressure on friends and adversaries of ours and that's unacceptable and drawing that line does not mean you have to say at this specific moment at this specific
and this is what the change that we saw. >> many do and again from as the united states perspective it's different but in the countries my experience is in america, is a really pay attention to this international treaties and they pay attention to and they use them to -- and it is not inconsequential. this is what i want to clarify it's not because the u.n. police those countries but the advocates in the countries use the treaty. >> are there any question is that women in the -- women in costa rica are on equal footing with women in the united states in terms of equal rights? >> yes. i mean in terms of the laws of the country? yes. i would say they are ahead of the united states. because they have more representation in the legislature and now they have a woman president. >> we are ranked 81 in the world for representation in parliament and. they have quotas. >> they have quotas and there's other issues. but no means are we in a place to preach equal representation with 17% of women being in our congress. >> absolutely. >> and yet, hillary clinton particularly has been an incredible leader on this
of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that e iddot s joan it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think th it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting wit netanyahu, because 's in a goodlace dohi there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes ace e weavehe do t side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is insid baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's instd the something to be said not rock the boat strategy, the exon nous event that might change the race if you are the obama -- >> exon nous. >> it's a big word. a great crossword word. if you are the

mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base ed based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depict depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breakin

, the israelis do not believe that there is as much time as you well know as the united states believes. what can we do to persuade prime minister netanyahu not to take preemptive action because there is more time, or do you agree there is more time for sanctions to work? >> i would agree with secretary clinton. i agree with that. additionally, the p5 plus 1 negotiations, i understand, have resumed. i think what needs to be done candidly and i have suggested this privately to the administration, i think we have to learn whether the supreme leader wants an agreement and if he does, what it will take. it may well be that the united states has to bilaterally step up and take use of this opportunity, to interface dir t directly with the supreme leader. i understand israel's position. i also know that the united states has been working hand and glove with israel, in many different ways, many of them classified, so there has been really unbridled cooperation with israel. so, i think we have done everything that we should be doing. >> and senator, just briefly, you're suggesting direct talks between th
. it was a crude and disgusting video, sparking outrage throughout the muslim world. the united states government had nothing to do with this video. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know there are some who ask why don't we ban such a video? there's no video that justifies an attack on an ambassador any more than the people that produced this video represent views of americans. >> bill: i'm confused. now we're back to blaming the video for the terrorist attack. weren't we told it was "self-evident" by jay carney this was all the work of al qaeda? then it was terrorism, then al-qaeda. my head is spinning trying to keep up with the changing versions and the finger-pointing going on. let's call this what it is. it's a cover-up by the administration. a pair of senators must be smelling the same stink, because they're demanding that the secretary of state, hillary clinton, release ambassador stevens' diplomatic cables. a few short blocks away from the u.n. where the president continued to condemn this youtube trailer, we're awaiting
until we choose the next president of the united states and this week the candidates are crisscrossing key battleground states trying to sway those undecided voters. president obama is heading for the key swing state of ohio right now with stops planned in cincinnati and columbus. he is hoping to win the state's 18 electoral votes, come november. governor mitt romney is in california where he is talking to hispanic voters, a key voting bloc that could decide the election. he is also launching a new batch of campaign ads laying out specifics exactly how he would govern. listen. >> got to balance the budget. you've got to cut the deficit. you've got to stop spending more money than we take in. an finally, champion small business. have tax policies, regulations and health care policies that help small business. we put those in place we'll add 12 million new jobs in four years. jon: let's talk about it with shane april, editor of campaigns and elections magazine. shane, the republican establishment, if you want to call it that was sometimes critical of the romney campaign saying they weren
romney said take a look at gdp numbers over in china and russia, the united states is falling behind those countries. he said that the united states needs to be doing better than europe. that's one of his big go-to lines. europe is not working for europe. it isn't going to work here in the united states. so these two campaigns are going to be going at it over the economy. we heard president obama throw out a very attack line talking about the mother jones video that came out. he said in front of that crowd, he said when i look out at this crowd i don't see a lot of victims, referring to what mitt romney said in that hidden camera video. they're talking about defense stuff. but the economy looming over everything else. >> thank you, jim. appreciate it as always. president obama and mitt romney face to face. first presidential debate wednesday night. watch it live, 7:00 eastern or cnn.com. >>> also another huge story that has everybody talking. no kidding. the nfl and its refs. right now nfl commissioner roger goodell is taking questions at a presser in new york. let's see what he's go
the ascension into the world trade association. she said the united states must normalize trade relations so american business can reap -- speakingrussia's in the new york times, this piece in the weekly review pointing out the democratic party realized one kind of history and it would like to realize another with hillary. it is time for a woman. both conventions there were ghosts of politics past, present, and teacher. next is he larry. caller: i have been watching this for -- ever since it started here. i have been paying close attention throughout my life. my parents were democrats. i have seen them, and i have seen -- i became an independent. i voted for the ban that would best do the job. well, in the last four years i have seen republicans cost the united states a downgrade adventure it's true -- in its credit rating. i have seen them block every opportunity to come to a budget conclusion. i have seen paul ryan and make statements that he knows are false. all through the whole scenario of the last four years. you would know he is lying about fax. as far as mitt romney goes, you're sorr
the united states. ever. it is likely the iranian's president final speech to the u.n. attacking the united states and railed on israel calling its people "uncivilized." this is the holiest jewish holiday of the year. both presidential nominees crossing paths in ohio today. voters in ohio cast ballots in days. we will look at the poll that shows a candidate leading well outside the margin of error. the rising cost to stay in touch. smartphones can be expensive. we know that. just wait until you hear how much they are cutting into a lot of family budgets. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, the iranian president, ahmadinejad, today delivered what could be the last antiisraeli american and antiisraeli ranting in front of the u.n. the american delegation did not walk out. the american delegation never even showed up. they were out before he took the podium. the president, ahmadinejad, has less than a year left in the second and final term. the united states and israel have accuseddive ran of working toward a nu
. >> does it surprise you that the united states doesn't take any other actions other than what they call nonlethal support? do it surprise you they don't want to arm the rebels, for instance or talk about a no-fly zone or buffer zone or safe zones? >> translator: right now there are certain things being expected from the united states. the united states had not yet catered to those expectations. maybe it's because of the elections, maybe it's because of the pre-election situation in the states. nobody has spoken to us about their reasons and they are not obliged to state anything. we're very thankful and pleased they have stated they are against this regime. >> it's good to see you. hearing what he said, can you give me a broader context of what he was explaining? >> reporter: i think he's very frustrated. he's a good friend of united states and a good friend to the obama administration. he didn't want to come out and directly sledge hammer the obama administration but he did say he is frustrated. perhaps the elections are playing part in the fact that the united states is not leading in
the united states, my new book that you mentioned, here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the lack of freedom talks about treatise he's pushing which is taxing american oil wells offshore, billionaires throughout the world and using that money to go to the third world. going past foreign aid and actually taxing the united states internationally to give the money to the third world. that was at the core of the rio conference. and these schemes are floating around heavily and they lie at the core of obama's view. look, when two-thirds -- in 1980 one-third of our federal budget went to cash transfers to other people, money that we paid people. now it's two-thirds. two-thirds of it goes there. so when you have one percent of the population paying 42% of the tax and two-thirds of the tax going to other people, what do you call that but income redistribution? >> well, i hear you talk about it and others talk about it, you do did of it with a level of certainty and conviction, and i think is it resonating with the voters? there's a new nbc news wall street journal poll, in io
. welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we have a blockbuster show for you today. for much of the show we have an extended conversation with president bill clinton. we'll talk about the presidential race, iran ice nuclear ambitions, the u.s. economy, the jobs problem and much more. >>> then the author who lived under a death sentence sfr iran ice ayatollah hue mayny. >>> also, romney and obama seem to agree on outsourcing they both hate, actually they should both embrace it. i'll tell you why. but first here's my take. over the last week as we watched rage in the muslim world, people have asked why it's happening and because we're in a campaign season, that question has become a political one. some republicans say it is president obama's policies that have produced this atmosphere. he has projected weakness, offered olive branches and been naive. but think about it, had president obama kept 100,000 troops occupying iraq, would that have made people in the middle east happier with america. had he given a more combative speech three years ago woul
from fox this thursday night. the united states is pulling more staffers from our embassy at libya for security reasons. that is what officials are telling fox news. they say the move is temporary and they hope to send the workers back next week. the u.s. cut the staff to emergency levels after the attack on the consul in benghazi. now fox news has learned that officials are calling it a attae first 24 hours, not one but two sources say investigators suspected a group with ties to al-qaeda was to blame. a few days later obama officials were still telling a different story. >> the best assessment we have today that in fact this was not a preplanned attack. that what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the day after that comment. jay carney said it is i think self-evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. he says the president agrees. quote, it is certainly the case it is in o
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q

, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. the middle east, even though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> gwen, i thought it was an interesting speech. very reflective speech. i think probably designd by the president and his advisors to try to heal some of the wounds that have been so apparent between the muslim world and the united states over these last two weeks, these very tragic weeks. i thought it was interes
